BOUDOIR DIARY

Valentines true meaning- boudoir style-

So! I made it to Toronto.com in an article about V-Day Gifts for the Adventurous Amour  
loves it. thumbs up to Jessica Pollack!  And I quote:

"Ok, I know that this one is a big splurge, but if you’ve got the flow then don’t hesitate to make it a go. It’s a win-win.

And Savage chicken s agrees:

Was thinking on why have my naked face in my blog but I guess since I do not have other samples might as well use me. And black and white is a little bit less harsh.



Video- warning it has music- just in case you are reading this in the middle of the night and the volume of your computer is turned up high (you know what I mean)

And the results in action- well a portrait. On the left is my un-retouched photo. Which is not so bad considering I can barely see my freckles and mustache. I love my 50mm lense. And the angle looks like I have cheekbones instead of just cheeks.
